Colleges face off in national robotic football competition

Several colleges came to Michiana to compete in a national robotic football competition.

Notre Dame, Purdue Kokomo, Ohio Northern, and Valparaiso faced off in tournaments on Friday.

They're competing for a chance to win the Brian Haderman trophy in tonight's championship game. These colleges are just four out of nine schools who have full robot teams.

Robotics football is a competition where robots play American football. All of the robots were built by students.

The championship game starts at 7 pm in the Stepan Center. The game is free and open to the public.
